Monday- Home Learning
Good morning Hazel Class!
I hope you have all had a good weekend and managed to get outside for a little while in the lovely Spring sunshine yesterday. Have you noticed any signs of Spring around you? Here in Malvern there are lots of trees starting to bud and some beautiful Spring flowers poking their way through the grass outside the window of my new flat. Last night Mr Parton and I went for a long walk around our new home and the birds were all singing loudly. Listen out for the birds in your garden if you can.
If you are staying at home there are lots of online exercise activities you could try, Joe Wicks is broadcasting a daily exercise class at 9am and Cosmic Kids yoga has some lovely routines you can easily follow.
Have you chosen two activities to do today? Don't forget to look at the grid on the inside of your Maths and English books and pick two things to do to keep you busy at home. Remember to use your neatest writing in those books and write down what you have been up to. You could also stick photographs in or draw and label pictures. I am looking forward to seeing your books when we get back to school and I hope it won't be too long before I can see you all again as well.
I would also like you to start collecting information about the weather each day and there is an idea about how you could present you information below. You could decide to use a different method like a tally chart or a block chart. If you can find out what the weather is like in Morogoro, Tanzania as well then you can compare our two countries. Kikundi Primary School is also closed at the moment and the teachers have been messaging me to ask if we are all ok. They also send their love to you all.
Don't forget to read for 15 minutes today, you could write about what you read in your English book. I know you all picked some long chapter books from the library which might take a long time to read but don't give up! What do you think will happen in your book? Who is the main character? Is there a goody and a baddie in the story? Is this book similar to anything else you have read?
That's all for today. Make sure you are helping your grown-ups around the house and being polite and well behaved!
REDCORDING THE WEATHER
YR2 home learning packs can be found in the front of the Maths and English books sent home today and are also available to download below. You should have also received various resources to use when completing your learning activities.
Try to complete one Maths and 1 English activity each weekday and record them in your books. Don't forget to read every day.
Check back each weekday for a message and further activities to complete.
REMEMBER TO KEEP WASHING YOUR HANDS

Hazel Class- Year 2
Mrs Parton and
Welcome to Hazel Class! We have an exciting year planned with lots of interesting topics to share with you. Don't forget to check out the parent tab homework page each week to keep up to date with ways you can help continue your learning at home! If you have any question, no matter how small, please asks a member of staff or pop a note in your child's homelink book. Homelink books are checked every morning.
What a great turn out! Many thanks to all who attended and supported the children in their learning about 2D and 3D shapes. This winner of the shape monster competition (as voted for by the children) was Lily!
Photos to follow! Watch this space.
Next week we will be starting to find out all about fractions. There may well be some cake or pizza involved! Yummy :)
4.02.2020 Hazel Class Educational Visit to Envirosort
Over the last 2 weeks we have been collecting and investigating lots of data! We have created tally charts, pictograms and block charts. If you want to know which biscuit was the most popular in Hazel Class come and have a look at our block chart or ask one of the children!
Some examples of the types of data collection we have looked at.
Just how do you wash a woolly mammoth?
The children really enjoyed sharing the story by Michelle Robinson and have been coming up with some great ideas about how they would complete this tricky job! Watch this space for their ideas!
Where Do I live?
So far this half term in topic we have covered-
* What the school looks like from above and what the surrounding grounds look like.
* What the route from my classroom to other areas of the school looks like on a floor plan.
* How to give instructions on how to get from one place to another.
We are now moving on to-
* What the route from home to school looks like on a map.
Please see homework page for more details.
We will then be moving on to comparing the climate where we live to that of a country in the Southern Hemisphere (Tanzania)
Where do I live?
Would a Dinosaur make a good pet?
Some children think it would but others disagree. We have been fining out about what habitat an animal needs to keep it healthy and happy. This week we investigated food chains. Do you know what a dinosaur might eat?
We are also collecting interesting scientific vocabulary and finding out what it all means. For example; carnivore, omnivore and herbivore; prey and predator; producer, consumer, apex predator or cannibal!
Once we have found all of the facts we will be writing a report about why a dinosaur would or would not be a good pet!

African Art Inspired Fans
On Friday 29th November Hazel Class visited the Lawns Nursing Home to sing iSingPop songs and to give the residents some postcards we had made. We really enjoyed meeting the residents and the gingerbread men they gave us were very tasty!

African Art Project
Following Madame Maoo's exciting visit to NJK the children enjoyed exploring African art. We looked at lots of examples of fabric designs to get inspiration for our own designs. Then we developed our idea and designed our own African art inspired fans. Keep checking this page for phots of the finished art work!

Thank you to everyone who came to KS1's Pop-Up Toy Museum this afternoon. The children thoroughly enjoyed seeing you and sharing what they have been doing this term- especially the pop-up toys they made! They really enjoyed having the chance to write to relatives to find out about what toys were like in the past and we have shared many reply letters in class.
Some of our maths practical work this term
On 25th October to conclude and consolidate our work on habitats, life cycles and classification of animals Rowan and Hazel classes visited Bishops Wood and had an amazing time learning about all sorts of mini-beasts! We went pond dipping, mini-beast hunting, tree shaking and insect catching. We learnt all about the different types of mini-beasts there are, where they make their homes and how they are classified.
You can visit Bishop's Wood website by clicking the link below and find out about their facilities and the benefits of outdoor learning
